Question by Frankie Baby 82:
How young can you take a baby out of the country?
I am due in November of this year, and my sister is planning her wedding in March, at which point the baby will be 4 months old. She is getting married in the Carribbean. I can’t possibly miss her wedding, (I’m a bridesmaid!) and my partner staying home is not an option (can’t go to a wedding without a date!) Is 4 months too young for international travel? I worry about malaria, and viruses that he/she will not yet be immunized for. But I can’t bear the thought of leaving a brand new baby at home, especially since I want to breastfeed as long as possible.
Obviously I have thought of a passport. I have an extra application from when I got mine, just waiting for a name, birthdate, and SS# to go with it! I am more concerned with the health risks specific to the Virgin Islands.

Do babies who wear cloth diapers take longer to walk?
My son is 13 months and other than actively cruising around and free standing, he has no interest whatsoever in walking. He’s never taken a single step on his own and when we hold his hands to help him along he sits down to crawl instead. I know I shouldn’t worry because every baby hits their milestones at different times, but I am wondering if his bulky cloth diaper is impeding his mobility. Anyone else have a similar experience?

Is it safe to take tablets for Irritable Bowel Syndrome whilst ttc?
Me and my partner are ttc (which I havent mentioned to my GP) but last week I was prescribed Colofac as the dr suspects I have IBS (which I have looked at the symptoms and I do not think I have). I havent started taking them yet, and this day I read that you shouldn’t take take them if you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant. I am slightly worried so just wondering if anyone is in the same boat as me? Me and my partner are so desperate to conceive and I dont want to take anything that is going to hinder conception or harm the baby if I do conceive.

Expressing breast milk to take out with you?
Can I express milk to take out with me when going anywhere with baby? If so, how do I keep everything sterile? I am really confused by this whole subject so any advice would be much appreciated!
Thanks Frank, but I already know how to express and store breast milk and have all the equipment – steriliser, pump, bottles etc. I was asking what to do with it when Im taking it out, to keep it fresh and safe for baby to drink.
Question by apryle:
what do you use besides a rectal thermometer to take an infants temperature?
i am freaked out by the idea of taking a rectal temp. i know it’s most accurate but i know there are a few other things out there like a forehead one and the ear one. but i have heard they aren’t accurate. is there one or brand that u use that u love and get an accurate reading?

Question by heartlostangel:
Should I take my infant to the E.R. or wait for the physician to open monday?
I have a baby girl who will be a month on the 14th. She woke up this morning with a thick crust running down her cheek from her eye, which is not red itself. But it was seeping so I wiped it with a clean warm washcloth about two hours ago and massaged the tear duct a bit. But now her eye has a thick line of pus running all the way across(she’s sleeping). It’s so thick you can’t even see her eyelashes. Should I take her to the emergency room tonight or wait for her doctor’s office to open monday?

Question by creyes143:
Breastfeeding Problems. Breastfed baby gets lazy at the nipple and will not take a bottle. Any Advice?
I have a 8 week old baby boy. He has always been breastfed. Recently I noticed he gets frustrated when I breastfeed him. I am producing enough milk (so I think). I am thinking he is getting lazy and doesn’t want to suck anymore. I tried giving him a bottle but he refuses and screams. I try giving him the breast again and he goes for it but again after a few minutes he cries out of frustration. I know he’s starving and I try for hours trying to give him both but he will not take it until he is starving. He only takes the bottle from Father sometimes….. I do not comprehend why he is having trouble now with the bottle. Since he was born I always gave him a 2 oz bottle to help him get full at night and he would take it with no problem. Now he’s not having it. I waant to breastfeed him and that’s what he wants but he gets lazy…..
Please help! Any suggestions. Is it me? the formula? Has this happened to anyone?

Question by Tori V:
What advice do you wish all young/new moms would take?
This question is for mommies who either learned things the hard way, or wish they would have taken someone’s advice when they had the chance.
I’m TTC right now, and the birthing part doesn’t scare me, the “taking-care-of-a-newborn” part scares me! I feel like a baby dummy and I do not know the first thing about babies, except that I will love mine to death!
That being said, what are some random pieces of advice you would like to share with young/new mommies or mommies to be?
For example, I had no idea about the newborn belly button, and how that works. Glad I found that out before I had my little one!
